Jackie Toaduff Obituary, Death Cause – This is going to be the most challenging message I’ve ever needed to convey to someone. I am saddened to write this and let everyone know that one of my closest friends and the most incredible person I have ever had the pleasure of knowing has passed away. On Sunday, Jackie Toaduff, the proprietor of the Chantry hotel, passed suddenly following a brief bout with illness that she had been battling. I have no doubt that a large number of people will miss him, and I also have no doubt that he was cherished by a large number of people. My entire being is broken, and I will carry the memory of you with me for the rest of my life. My heart will never be the same.
